    So I'm pretty new to the whole Axe Fx thing, as well as this forum so apologies if this has been asked a lot or something. My unit is the XL+, for reference.

    I am trying to figure out how Dweezil get's his clean tones, as seen in this vid at this mark--
    I've heard him mention how it's suppose to replicate Frank's DI clean, but there has to be more to it. I have been trying to achieve the tone, but I can't seem to capture that "bubbly glassy" sound that even his SG has on his clean presets. Anyone have any patches where they've achieved this sound or know how to obtain it? Thanks in advance.

    Fractool is a free download too, though donations would be encouraged if it’s something you find of value to you

    If you're trying to emulate Frank's DI tones (which is what Dweezil is doing) you might try to imagine a path similar to a DI. That is to say... NO AMP. NO CAB! For convenience, others have also used an AMP but no cab.

    If anyone knows, @Admin M@ knows. He literally works with Dweezil on his Fractal rig.
